As we look back on 2011, we wanted to share some of the great things that have happened at Delvinia and AskingCanadians™ this year.
In the spring, we launched our data collection division under the AskingCanadians™ brand and entered new partnerships with companies like Environics Analytics, SavvyMom and Motricity. We also conducted some really fascinating R&D projects with Ryerson University and the Town of Markham.
During the past 12 months we’ve added 12 new faces to our team and we’ve seen long-time Delvinians take on new roles within the company. Our client roster has also grown. Between the two sides of the business, we have added more than 20 new clients since the end of 2010.
Adam and Steve, together with our thought leaders, took part in more than 25 speaking engagements throughout the year—presenting at conferences like the MRIA National Conference, the CMA National Convention, GTEC 2011 in Ottawa and the Confirmit Community Conference in Las Vegas.
We’ve also got some new hardware on display in our reception space. Our work with clients like the Canadian Opera Company, Manulife Financial, Microsoft Canada, the Town of Markham and the Richard Ivey School of Business was recognized with 14 awards this year (congratulations!) including two International Business Awards, three Interactive Media Awards, three WebAwards, two W³ Awards, two Davey Awards, an Internet Advertising Award and our first Webby Award.
Many of those award-winning projects have been profiled on our blog (which has featured close to 140 new posts) and in the media. Delvinia’s DIG report on eDemocracy and Citizen Engagement, which highlighted our work with the Town of Markham, was the lead story on the front page of the Toronto Star in September. We also appeared on the cover of Vue and Direct Marketing magazines and received coverage by news outlets like CNN.com, The Globe and Mail, CBC.ca, Marketing, Strategy and Research to name a few.
Thank you to everyone who helped to make 2011 a great year. We’re looking forward to 2012 and all that it brings.
